Of course the Magic Kingdom was patterned after the original Disneyland in California. You enter the park on Main Street U.S.A. The basic layout is the same as the California park, but Florida's Magic Kingdom does not have a Matterhorn ride. One thing about the Magic Kingdom here in Florida - It is ALWAYS changing. The additions include new rides, fireworks and light shows, and even the different parades.

  You cannot visit the Magic Kingdom just once a year and think you've seen it all. They change the seasons with different times of the year. Sometimes it's decorated for Easter, or Fall or Halloween and especially for Christmas. It even snows once in a while! Always be on the lookout for different characters. You never know which unusual character might show up next.
